Wayne Mardle has given his thoughts on Michael van Gerwen and Peter Wright facing off in one of the ties of the night in Sheffield.

Mardle has said that due to Van Gerwen’s win at the Austrian Darts Open he expects him to win again.

‘Van Gerwen has not played poorly in this Premier League. He had three or four weeks when he was majestic but it didn’t go for him last week. Daryl Gurney kept him under pressure and he missed.’

‘You have got to fancy Van Gerwen to beat Peter Wright, though. He beat him at the Austrian Open on his way to victory and you have got to fancy him doing it again.’
